In todayís online world the spread of counterfeit products has gone global and the range of goods being copied is increasing significantly. Counterfeiters illegally copy leading brands for financial advantage and unfortunately they are targeting some of the top selling Shure products, in particular the SM58 and SM57.

If the price sounds too good to be true, then it probably is...
